free vhdl simulator
VHDL Simili is a low-cost, yet powerful and feature-rich VHDL development system designed for the serious hardware designer. It includes a very fast VHDL compiler and simulator assembled into a powerful Integrated Development Environment and waveform interface. The compiler/simulator can be used with or without the graphical user interface (as batch tools). VHDL Simili Professional Edition adds advanced debugging and code-coverage capabilities. VHDL Simili development is currently available for FREE (intended for small designs and for students) or you can request a demo/trial license for the full version after downloading and installing the software.

Re: free vhdl simulator
I think this is not free,
you can use GHDL
GHDL is a complete VHDL simulator, using the GCC technology.
VHDL is a language standardized by the research, intended for developing electronic systems.
GHDL implements the VHDL language according to the research 1076-1987, the research 1076-1993 and later standards. GHDL compiles VHDL files and creates a binary which simulates (or executes) your design. See the features page for more details.
GHDL does not do synthesis: it cannot translate your design into a netlist.
